I hope you all will join me in a little challenge.
First, you need a few background details.
Last Fall, I started feeling bad. Very bad. Shortness of breath, lack of energy. I would walk up one flight of stairs and be out of breath. (And I'm the woman who usually bounds up stairs two at a time.) It took every ounce of energy I had to get my kids off to school, then I would sleep most of the day and drag myself out of bed to go get them in the afternoon. I felt like a terrible mom. I knew something was wrong. After a few months of doctors appointments and tests, I found out I have asthma. I was shocked. Completely shocked.
10 months later...
I am thankful for good asthma meds (and dear friends and family members who deal with asthma and answered a zillion questions for me!). It took a long time, but I feel like myself again. I really want to get back into running. You can see here how much I enjoy it. I'm starting out with baby steps. Walking a little bit each day. This is were the challenge comes in. Would you join me in taking a little time for yourself each week? Walk. Run. Swim. Bike. Play catch with your dog! Take a few moments to get outside and move.
Whether this is a first step for you or something you already do on a daily basis, please join me! Come back sometime soon to leave a comment and let us know what you are doing! Or write your own "Ready, Get Set, Go" post and leave a link so we can find you. (There are no rules or regulations to join the challenge. We will be proud of each step we take... or tennis ball we hit over the net... or set of stairs we take instead of the elevator.) I plan to write a short post each Thursday to keep you updated !

I'll be your cheerleader if you will be mine!
Ready, Get Set, Go!
